Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (1/11/12)

This week, wonderstrangers all over the country are covered in glue and water.  I’m covered.  Cindy is covered.  Some of you are covered.  I think I even saw a glob on the cat.  The reason for all of this glue and water, of course, is that we’re featuring paper mache projects all month long, and not just any projects, but really cool projects that help you organize your art and crafting supplies.  Last Friday, Sarah turned a leftover box from the holidays into amazing custom storage for colored pencils and markers.   It rocked so hard that two people have already made pieces inspired by the tutorial.

 

While the world turns and the paper mache dries, meanwhile, we’re all working on things for our shops as well.  For a sneaky peek, keep reading!

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (12/21)

Christmas is coming; the goose is getting fat!  Okay, it might be getting fat.  We don’t actually know, because I’m a vegetarian, Sarah is serving prime rib, Nanner is eating at someone else’s house, and Cindy will be making appetizers and birthday cake for her baby girl, born on Christmas Day.  Until that day arrives, however, we are all working hard to finish our commissions and spread the love of ‘strange the world over!

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (12/13)

For the past few weeks, we have been working harder than Santa’s elves to make all kinds of delicious seasonal goodies – and  I don’t mean those spoiled, high-falutin’, toy-makin’ elves, either; I mean the ones who trim Santa’s corns and wash his cookie plates and hide the cocoa when Mrs. Claus says he’s had enough.  Oh yeah.  We work harder than the grouchy elves.  That’s how much we love to make art!

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (11/30)

This week, we’re celebrating a wonderstrange first:  We survived Black Friday!   Hell, we even enjoyed Black Friday – and Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday!  Sure, by the time Monday rolled around, we were kind of exhausted and droopy around the ears, but this is not wimpystrange!  We soldiered right on!  So pour some eggnog, and let’s see what’s up!
